*Hi there, just a little update; at the moment, I think I'm fully booked. Feel free to get in touch in case of cancellations. Thanks!*

My son and I have lived on this smallholding for the past 15 years. We have a cottage, a rustic bothy/music rehearsal room where sometimes couchsurfers and helpx guests have stayed, a workshop for art and creative projects. We enjoy crafts, I make things from beach wood and my son is studying design.

The land is approximately 1 hectare, I have planted over 500 trees and they are just starting to mature. There is a vegetable garden and a polytunnel (greenhouse). I try to grow all my vegetables and I am still learning about preserving vegetables so that we can be self-sufficient as much as possible. I also have chickens for eggs, a cat that lives outside and a very energetic young dog!

I like to have contact with the things I need in life. Apart from growing food, I plan to use trees for firewood and at present, I use waste wood from build... more inside

We are retired but active couple, we have 8 acres of ground full of wonders such as horses, chickens, a dog and a cat, out buildings, a wind turbine, gardens and a vegetable plot therefore we would like some people to come and help us out in and around the house and land.
We are sociable pair. we have 4 grown up children who no longer live at home so we have space to host people and we want to share our home and stories with interesting people who like to do the same! We have rooms on Air BnB too, so guests often come and go, as do friends and family. Having Help Xers will be a great practical help but also fun and interesting for us and you too!

We are located between Stirling and St Andrews in the beautiful county of Kinross-shire 40 miles from Edinburgh, in a village called Drum.

We have very few days left this year.
2nd July until 8th July 7 days
24th August until 2nd September 10 days

Thank you for reading our profile to the end before emailing.

We mix the volunteers. In each group we have different nationalities genders languages and ages to make it interesting and for the opportunity of meeting new people.

When you come there should be no more than one other who speaks your language most days.
The common language is English and we take our role of helping with the English language seriously.
Volunteers have started with a little English and also with good English in both cases there has been noticeable improvement.

Our House burned down on 25 02 2014
Since then we have hosted dozens of volunteers from nearly twenty countries.
the volunteers have emptied the ashes and stopped more damage.
In 2015 we started to build. There`s lots of stuff for willing hands available.

We are a small deer farm (101 hectares) and family home with woodland, 3 hectare garden and old farm buildings. We also have dogs and horses and a rabbit who lives in the house like a dog.

There are many jobs to be done which could suit lots of different people so have a look and see if you would fit in.

Help is needed with weeding, maintaining the fields and woodland, and painting and upkeep of the old farm buildings over short stays. At present we really need some people to help with clearing gorse and burning it.

We will give you good tools to work with.

You will work with either the host or another person.

Painting inside and outside

Also a carpenter/joiner would be useful to help repair an old greenhouse
